azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!
azjetfan Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:46 PM) Yup. Golf. I'm ready to take on Tiger. Mid season form. For what ever reason I am hitting the driver great. 280 and fairly controlled. I'm playing again Saturday.
santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) tiger shot a 66 today didnt he easy course though
santana Icon : (02 July 2015 - 07:55 PM) things were going too well for the jets this off season

DeSean Jackson doesn’t vacation on Revis Island

By FRANK WARD
DailyPhiladelphian.com Editor

DeSean Jackson gets it. Hell, even agent Drew Rosenhaus gets it.

Holdouts aren’t good for business. They’re not good for the team nor the player involved. Teams suffer from missing their best players. The player suffers from a hit to their image as being greedy bastards.

In Philly, all you have to do is say two words to conjure up images of a self-centered pinhead or two: “Next question.”

Eagles fans can rest quietly in knowing that DeSean Jackson is not Terrell Owens when it comes to angling for a new deal. He isn’t joining Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Holdout Island this summer. Nor is he ripping apart team chemistry and doing sit-ups in his driveway.

Instead, Jackson has been at every session of training camp and looked much like the leader of the Eagles team. He’s meeting injured players at midfield. He’s getting the troops pumped for battle. He is the face of the franchise and relishing the opportunity to be such.

The two-position Pro Bowler, who everyone agrees has outperformed his rookie contract that pays him $800,000 this year, broke his silence this week in saying, “I’m just here to play football. All that other stuff, I could care less about.”

DeSean Jackson continues to downplay his desire for a new contract. He's clearly outperformed the $800,000 he's scheduled to earn this season.

Don’t believe every word of that. He cares about the payday; everyone does. But, he’s not going to let it affect him or his team’s chances to do good things this season. The better the team does, the more money he can make.

DJacc has a good head on his shoulders and good advisers. He realizes there’s more to a bank account than the money you earn from the NFL. There’s endorsements, appearances, media opportunities and other things that sometimes blow an NFL salary out of the water. A holdout, especially one by an elite receiver in Philadelphia, would kill those opportunities. It’s better to be seen as a professional who wants to play football and win.

That’s precisely what Jackson is doing. And, for all the ill will we have against his agent Drew Rosenhaus, the fact is that Drew doesn’t hold players out. At least he hasn’t since Terrell Owens. Chad Ochocinco, Anquan Boldin and others griped about contracts for years but still played.

While many fans were concerned when Jackson switched to Rosenhaus last year, the fact is we shouldn’t have been. Rosenhaus, Jackson and the Eagles know a new contract needs to be done. Jackson is that “special case” Joe banner often alludes to when the Eagles rarely do rip up contracts and renegotiate. However, both sides also know nothing can really be done in terms of a contract that will keep DJacc here for years until a new CBA is agreed to.

DeSean Jackson realizes the value of your image among the fans. A holdout would devalue that.

For now, DJacc is here ready to keep making history and lead this team to perform to the best of its ability. If you question his leadership ability, just read the comments he had in the Inquirer earlier this week.

“I’m not doing that this year. I could care less about all of that,” he told the paper. “I’m here to win games and to be a team player and to do everything I can to encourage my guys [to] go out there and just be successful and win games, that’s all I care about.”

That's true. Revis has really sunk in my eyes but football fans, we're just like dumb girls. After all the months of playing headgames, all Revis has to do is make another one handed int off Brady and we'll be back to thinking of him during sex... well at least 115 will.
